Masters 2017: Four Golfers To Watch In Final Round

The Masters is heading into its final day Sunday and there are a few things to watch for if you are a huge golf fan or just a casual clicker who wants to see how the last round goes down. So before the first group tees off, let’s break down a couple of things to watch out for.

SERGIO GARCIA: Where have we seen this before? Garcia has been a big-time golfer for the last decade or so and has been at the top or in the running for the lead in a lot of majors, but never has won. He sits at the top of the leaderboard along with Justin Rose heading into the last round. There’s a lot of hype surrounding Garcia and it would be a nice moment for Garcia for him to win Sunday.

RICKIE FOWLER: This is the guy who could drag casual golf fans out of the shadows and into the mainstream. Fowler is the young gun with a sweet swing who is looking to win his first major championship. He ended the second day tied for the lead and going into the final day he is one stroke behind Rose and Garcia. Will it be Fowler? It seems like his head is right where it needs to be for the win.

JORDAN SPIETH: After a very strong 2015 campaign, Speith really came up short in 2016 and there was a lot of chatter if he was really overachieving. However, he is the lion waiting for the kill Sunday. Should any of the top leaders slip up, it will be Spieth getting the advantage Sunday. He is just two strokes back of the lead after having a pretty bad opening day. Everyone should have their eyes on this kid.

PHIL MICKELSON: Lefty is the veteran in the group. He has had more success than Garcia and could rise at any moment in the final round Sunday. However, he did not have a strong third day and sits eight strokes out of the lead. It would be an incredible feat for Mickelson to come back and win Sunday — but it does seem out of reach. He is going to be an interesting watch for certain.
